I Haz a Hat

I finally finished {R}’s Tanner Hat (found on Ravelry).  It shouldn’t have taken so long, but I couldn’t complete a row without coughing and sneezing uncontrollably.  I should have knitted it about an inch longer since he likes to flip the edge up a little.  I think it looks good and love how the decreases shape the hat.  I used Lion Brand Fisherman’s Wool in Oak Tweed.

Slow Progress

I am not making much progress on The Tanner Hat. I think I’ve only added a couple of inches since my last post. I’m attributing the lack of progress to it being winter break where we live and the kids are home from school. I’ve really got to give myself a kick in the rear and get back in the knitting groove.

Cuteness

Thank you Mother Nature for this lovely gift of a cold you have bestowed upon me.  How can I ever repay you for the continued coughing, sneezing,  sniffling and inability to sleep?  Perhaps I could knit you something and maybe I would, that is, if i didn’t have to use my hands to continually wipe my nose!!  So, instead, I will rummage through my saved pictures and post one of my adorable Miss Lucy Lou.  The cuteness always makes me feel better.

New Knitting Project

I am still sick, yet I managed to start a new project in between coughs, sneezes, cold chills and naps.  As per usual, I found the pattern on Ravelry.  It’s called The Tanner Hat and was designed by Gina Johnson.  I thought it was a good masculine type hat that would fit my husband and his personality.  I’ll post the details of the yarn I used and any modifications after I’m completed or you can click HERE to go to my Ravelry page for project details now.

Sickly

I had every intention of posting new project details today, but that has been stalled due to being sick. I am trying to get as much rest as possible and am hoping to get started on a new knit tomorrow. If this happens (or when it happens) I will update with pictures, details and links.

Acknowledgement

So, I logged onto Ravelry today to check out the forums and saw I had a message waiting for me.  Upon clicking the message box open, I noticed it was from the designer, Haven Leavitt, of the Man Hat I have been knitting lately (2 of them thus far).  It was simply asking if my picture of the finished product, modeled by my incrediably handsome son, could be featured on the hats pattern page at ravelry.  Mine is not the only one featured, but it did give me a sense of accomplishment and honor to be asked.    Of course, I said yes!

Man Hat #2: FINISHED

To my sons delight, I finished Man Hat #2  (click for project details) last night.  It looks great and he looks good in it.  We’ll see how well it still fits after he’s gotten it wet and thrown in the dryer a couple of times.
